There is a mountain of Mega Millions cash up for grabs Tuesday night as the jackpot reaches $367 million. 

The cash option for the jackpot is about $213 million.

Michigan Lottery officials say it is the fourth-largest Mega Millions jackpot this year. The biggest one won in 2018 was a $543 million jackpot.

The last Michigan player to win the jackpot was Kevin Blake of Waterford who won half of the game's $42 million jackpot in October 2017.

Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. Each Mega Millions play is only $2. For an additional $1 per play, players have the opportunity to add a "Megaplier" that can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times.
